Taking part in this year’s campaign are Suki Waterhouse, Jo Wood, Sheridan Smith and Alex Jones among others
BBC Children in Need launched this year’s BearFaced Day campaign featuring an array of celebrities such as Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, TV presenter Laura Whitmore and Arlene Philips among more. After the success of last year’s campaign which featured the likes of model Heidi Klum, TV presenter Julia Bradbury and News Reader Sian Williams, it is back again to raise money.
The premise is to ask women all across the UK to join them in ditching the make up by going BearFaced for Children in Need on 8th November and instead of the make up replacing it with a Pawprint available from the Post Office instead. Post Offices all across the UK are stocking the Pawprints and by buying one you will be helping make a difference to young people.
And if you need anymore encouragement then here is what some of this year’s participants had to say:
Sheridan Smith – “Pop a Pudsey Pawprint on instead of your makeup this Friday 8th November to help make a difference to young lives across the UK; every penny raised really will help!”
Alex Jones – “There are so many children and young people across the UK who need our help, so how could I say no to the BBC Children in Need BearFaced campaign? Join me and hundreds of other women going Bearfaced November 8th.”
Jo Wood – “I’m so excited to be taking part in BBC Children in Need’s BearFaced campaign this year! I hope that women across the UK will leave the make up at home for the day to help change the lives of children who really do need our help!”
The women involved this year have all already taken part in a make up free photo shoot with the famous and iconic photographer Rankin and now they asking you, women of the UK to do the same.It’s simple to take part just get rid of the make up, buy a Pawprint from your local Post Office and go it alone or team up with friends, family or colleagues and raise money together.
The simple act of ditching your daily make up routine, which lets face it is a bit of a chore anyway, and applying a Pawprint to your face could help so many children up and down the UK so what are you waiting for. Grab the girls and have a night in or afternoon tea and cake while going make up free and raising money without having to do anything stressful at all. I really think this is a brilliant idea for raising some money, it’s easy and it doesn’t take lots of time and preparation to take part. Although I wouldn’t be dare seen out of the house without the warpaint I think for charity I’m willing to make some exceptions and I plan on taking part.
Will you be taking part and ditching the make up for BBC Children in Need on 8th November?
